Subject: MOOC on Programming for Correctness

"Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never
to show their absence!" -- Edsger Dijkstra

On April 11, 2017, LAFF-On Programming for Correctness launches on
the edX platform:
https://www.edx.org/course/laff-programming-correctness-utaustinx-ut-p4c-14-01x.

This course builds upon the "FLAME" project that also yielded PLAPACK,
the libflame library, the SuperMatrix runtime system, and the
BLAS-like Library Instantiation Software (BLIS). It inspired the
Elemental library for distributed memory architectures. The course
exposes some of the "secret sauce" that has allowed us to rapidly
develop portable high- performance libraries with a high degree of
confidence . A short video that launches Week 0 is on YouTube:
https://youtu.be/P2Yx8TPKiDY.

Participants will learn not only how to prove programs correct, but
also how to apply the goal-oriented programming techniques (advocated
by Dijkstra and others) to many dense matrix computations that are
supported by libraries like BLAS, LAPACK, BLIS, libflame, and
Elemental. Importantly, the methodology yields families of algorithms
so that the most appropriate one for a given architecture can be
chosen.

But what about round-off error? How does this apply to sparse matrix
computations? Enrichments in the final week point to papers on how to
similarly derive backward error analyses and Krylov subspace methods.

We have tried to make the course interesting to novice and expert
alike. We gratefully acknowledge support from MathWorks, the National
Science Foundation, and The University of Texas at Austin.

Subject: Interactive Educational Modules in Scientific Computing

A stand-alone executable version of the Interactive Educational
http://heath.cs.illinois.edu/iem/. These interactive educational
modules assist students in learning basic concepts and algorithms of
scientific computing. The modules were previously available only as
Java applets accessed through a web browser, but the increasing
deprecation of Java by most modern web browsers often makes such
access problematic. Consequently, the modules have been adapted to
run stand-alone as an executable Java application, and can be run on
any computer having appropriate support for Java applications. The
modules were designed to accompany the textbook Scientific Computing,
McGraw-Hill (http://heath.cs.illinois.edu/scicomp/), but they can also
be used in conjunction with or independent of any textbook. Please
direct questions, suggestions, or bug reports to heath@illinois.edu.

Subject: INTLAB Version 10

Version 10 of INTLAB, the Matlab/Octave toolbox for Reliable
Computing, is now available. Several functions of global nature have

- Global minimization
- Global constraint minimization
- All roots of a nonlinear system R^n->R^n
- All roots of the gradient of a nonlinear system R^n->R
- Parameter identification

Results computed by INTLAB are verified to be correct in a rigorous
mathematical sense. That includes all possible computational
inaccuracies, from the input data to the output.

In particalur, input data may be afflicted with tolerances. In that
case error bounds for the solution of all problems for data within the
tolerances are computed.

Several other routines have been improved, in particular the sparse
linear system solver.

INTLAB is entirely written in Matlab/Octave, running on the latest
Matlab 2017a and downward compatible.

Subject: New Book, Iterative Solution of Symmetric Quasi-Definite Linear Systems

Iterative Solution of Symmetric Quasi-Definite Linear Systems
Dominique Orban and Mario Arioli
SIAM Spotlights 03
April 2017 / xiv + 93 pages / Softcover / 978-1-611974-72-0
List Price $39.00 / SIAM Member Price$27.30 / SL03

Numerous applications, including computational optimization and fluid
dynamics, give rise to block linear systems of equations said to have
the quasi-definite structure. In practical situations, the size or
density of those systems can preclude a factorization approach,
leaving only iterative methods as the solution technique. Known
iterative methods, however, are not specifically designed to take
advantage of the quasi- definite structure.

This book discusses the connection between quasi-definite systems and
linear least-squares problems, the most common and best understood
problems in applied mathematics, and explains how quasi- definite
systems can be solved using tailored iterative methods for linear
least squares (with half as much work!). To encourage researchers and
students to use the software, it is provided in MATLAB, Python, and
Julia.

Subject: New Book, Tensor Analysis

Tensor Analysis: Spectral Theory and Special Tensors, Liqun Qi and
Ziyan Luo
xiv + 305 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611974-74-4 /
List Price $84.00 / SIAM Member Price$58.80 / OT151

Tensors, or hypermatrices, are multi-arrays with more than two
indices. In the last decade or so, many concepts and results in matrix
theory---some of which are nontrivial---have been extended to tensors
and have a wide range of applications (for example, spectral
hypergraph theory, higher order Markov chains, polynomial
optimization, magnetic resonance imaging, automatic control, and
quantum entanglement problems). The authors provide a comprehensive
discussion of this new theory of tensors.

Tensor Analysis: Spectral Theory and Special Tensors is unique in that
it is the first book on these three subject areas: spectral theory of
tensors; the theory of special tensors, including nonnegative tensors,
positive semidefinite tensors, completely positive tensors, and
copositive tensors; and the spectral hypergraph theory via tensors.

Contents: List of Figures; List of Algrithms; Chapter 1: Introduction;
Chapter 2: Eigenvalues of Tensors; Chapter 3: Nonnegative Tensors;
Chapter 4: Spectral Hypergraph Theory via Tensors; Chapter 5: Positive
Semidefinite Tensors; Chapter 6: Completely Positive Tensors and
Copositive Tensors; Bibliography; Index.

Subject: Design and optimization under uncertainty, France, Jul 2017

The next 2017 CEA-EDF-INRIA summer school in applied mathematics will
be entitled "Design and optimization under uncertainty of large-scale
numerical models". It will be located in Paris (Jussieu) from 3d July
to 7th July. The two main courses will be given by Anne Auger / Dime
Brockoff (INRIA Saclay) and Julien Bect / Emmanuel Vazquez
(CentraleSupelec). The detailed program and information to register
are here :
http://www-hpc.cea.fr/SummerSchools/SummerSchools2017-NASS.htm

When dealing with complex and cpu-time expensive computer codes,
engineers and researchers have to adopt smart strategies in order to
improve the robustness and the precision of their study results.
Indeed, several uncertainties affect their physical and numerical
models, the required solving algorithms and the various model input
data and parameters.

The topic of dealing with uncertainty in numerical simulation is very
broad. In 2005, a CEA-EDF-INRIA summer school has covered the basics
of uncertainty propagation and sensitivity analysis with deterministic
and stochastic approaches. In 2011, another CEA-EDF-INRIA summer
school has explained several mathematical concepts of VV&UQ
(validation, verification and uncertainty quantification), by using in
particular Bayesian techniques.

The present proposition aims to cover techniques devoted to
optimization goals, by taking into account the remaining
uncertainties. Indeed, one of the main difficulties stands on cpu-time
expensive numerical models subject to environmental
uncertainties. Concepts of robustness and goal-oriented adaptive
algorithms have therefore to be developed. Among the applications, we
find the design of nuclear reactor, automotive, airplane, etc.
